Susan Harding, the winter 2007 quarterly classified award recipient, is congratulated by Clark College Interim President Bob Knight.


Susan Harding, a library and archives paraprofessional in Clark's Cannell Library, was announced as the winner of the winter 2007 quarterly classified award during a reception honoring all nominees held May 7 in the Penguin Student Union.

The nominees for the winter quarter award were:

  • Nancy Abel, Production Printing;
  • Susan Harding, Library;
  • Lenore Kennedy, Plant Services;
  • Joan Raney, English;
  • Saundra Solis, Running Start; and
  • Susan Taylor, International Programs.

Interim President Bob Knight thanked the nominees for their dedication and service to the college. Lisa Gibert, Clark College Foundation president, joined Knight in presenting the award to Harding, who has been with Clark College for more than 23 years.

The quarterly classified award was established in 2005 and recognizes classified staff who have demonstrated exemplary work performance, outstanding customer service, a positive and cooperative spirit, and/or special achievements or contributions to the college community.  Through the support of the college and the Clark College Foundation, the award recipient receives a $400 cash award.

Harding was recognized in her nomination for her work with the library catalog records as well as maintaining and preserving the condition of the print collections. “Susan began her career at Clark College in a library that used 19th century technologies and she has been integral to moving Cannell Library into the 21st century,” wrote her nominator. “Susan’s skills and enthusiastic participation were pivotal to the library’s conversion from print to digital records, automation of the library catalog, migration to the current Web-based system and participation in the Summit union catalog. Cannell Library’s records were migrated flawlessly from system to system in large part thanks to Susan’s accuracy and oversight.”

The nomination went on to state that, “without a problem solver like Susan working capably behind the scenes, library public services staff would not be as efficient, faculty could not teach as effectively and students would not be as well served at Clark College.”
